This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The criteria in which schools use to allocate places in the event that they are oversubscribed can and do vary between schools and over time. These criteria can include distance from the school and sometimes specific catchment areas but can also include, amongst others, priority for siblings, children of a particular faith or specific feeder schools. Living in an area where children have previously attended a school does not guarantee admission to the school in future years. Always check with the school’s own admission authority for the current admission arrangements.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

School Description

Over recent years, there have been many changes at Wroughton Infant School including changes to the leadership and other key senior staff. The school is now more settled under new leadership. Pupils and staff told us that people here are ‘proud to belong’, and that expectations for everyone are high. Learning is interesting, and fun. Visits and experiences, such as telling the story of ‘The Gruffalo’ in a wood, help to bring learning to life. Pupils value the regular events such as ‘Terrific Tuesdays’ and ‘Fabulous Fridays’. They like learning alongside their parents. There are displays of friendly characters, such as ‘Little Miss Curious’ around the school. These remind pupils about the school’s positive learning habits, such as being curious, resilient and independent. Pupils try hard during their lessons. Staff show pupils how to apply the school rules, to ‘do it, use it and own it’. Pupils like the rewards that help them make good choices. The consistent approach helps to create a safe, secure place. Pupils are kind to each other. This is because of the care that adults take to show pupils how to respect other. Leaders react quickly and firmly if there are any bullying or friendship issues, but these are rare. Staff listen to pupils. This helps them to become confident young learners. They are ready for their next steps in education. As the school council members determinedly told us, ‘If something needs changing in school, we will do it!’ What does the school do well and what does it need to do better? The new executive headteacher is supported strongly by the headteacher. Together, they have gained the trust of staff. These leaders make a united team. They work with integrity and a determination to improve the school further. They create a secure, respectful place to work. Staff enjoy their jobs. High-quality professional development, alongside frequent feedback and advice from leaders, supports them well. Governors have an accurate view of the school and are ambitious for every child. Although the school’s outcomes are good, leaders know there are some pupils who need more help to achieve well. Many curriculum leaders are new to their roles. They are enthusiastic and ambitious. They want teachers to have the support and resources they need to teach well. They work with leaders in other schools, in particular with the junior school in the federation.
